After taking out the championship on the US version of Dancing With the Stars, it wasn’t long before Bindi Irwin returned to her home at Australia Zoo on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
And it didn’t take long for her dance partner Derek Hough to follow through on his promise to come to Bindi’s homeland and see what the fuss is all about.
Clearly excited by his visit, Bindi posted the photo above with the caption, ‘So happy to get to introduce you to our world here in Australia! You are officially a Wildlife Warrior. Bring on the adventure!
Appearing on Sunrise just a few days after winning the show, Bindi revealed that she had named a koala after Derek.
“I am excited because Derek will be visiting Australia very soon to meet his own name sake,” she said, beaming.
